Another theory, under heading – COMMUNIST TREATMENT OF PRISONERS OF WAR and THE SOVIET UNION AND POW’S IN WWII. This has been posted before but reference to drowning was not mentioned, see quote below, again the figures are different depending on document.
The bodies discovered in the Katyn Forest left some 11,000 Polish POW'S unaccounted for. No trace has ever been found of them. All that is known for certain is that they were moved out of their camps at the same time as the POW'S who wound up in the mass graves of Katyn. It is believed by Polish nationals who have investigated the fate of their wartime POW's that many, if not all, were placed on barges and drowned in the White Sea.
